5 reasons to buy the 2020 Toyota Tacoma

1. The TRD trims add extra features for outdoor fun

If you're into camping, overlanding, or off-road-trail driving, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma offers a selection of TRD (based on the Toyota Racing Development platform) configurations: TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro. Along with higher ground clearance and off-road-tuned suspension, the TRD Pro offers an available TRD Pro Desert Air Intake snorkel to keep your engine free of dust and debris. Also included on the TRD Pro are a cat-back exhaust, internal bypass shocks with rear remote reservoirs, TRD-tuned front coil springs and rear leaf springs, electronically-controlled locking rear differential, Multi-Terrain Select and Crawl Control (automatic transmission only), and active traction control (manual transmission only).

2. VooDoo Blue and so many other colors, too

The 2020 Toyota Tacoma can come in one of nine spectacular colors. You'll have your choice of vibrant, show-stopping colors like Barcelona Red or VooDoo Blue or elegant shades like Quicksand and Silver Sky. On the 2020 model, Army Green returns to the lineup, which is a luminous hue to match your outdoor spirit. Paired with complimentary fabric, SofTex®, or leather, the 2020 Tacoma feels luxurious on the inside too. And if you like the traditional black, white, or gray, Toyota has you covered for your Tacoma as well.

3. Rugged, powerful, and still the right size to park easily

At a respectable length just shy of 18 feet, the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is only slightly longer than a full-size SUV. That means it's not going to be difficult to park and driving around town will be a breeze. This truck is 75.2 inches wide at its largest configuration (Double Cab), which is narrower than some SUVs. It helps to know that your Tacoma won't require you to park all the way in the back of the lot just to fit in a space.

4. On- and off-road chops

The 2020 Tacoma offers six trims, two of them specific to off-road driving. However, this truck is also more than proficient in all driving conditions, including rain and snow. Available in both 2WD and 4WD, you can find a Tacoma that measures up to your expectations and needs. If you're a fan of manual transmission, Toyota has you covered with the Tacoma. Both the manual and automatic transmissions are smooth options that engage the driver and keep the drive interesting.

5. Advanced driver-assist technologies

When it comes to technology, Toyota never fails to impress with a portfolio of standard features. The 2020 Toyota Tacoma includes pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection, lane-departure alert with sway warning, dynamic cruise control, and automatic high beams as standard. The whole package gives you confidence driving wherever life takes you. The best part is that every trim of the 2020 Tacoma includes these technologies, from the SR to the TRD Pro.
